My Students

My inquisitive hardworking 5th graders attend a large public elementary school in the South Bronx. Many of my students live in temporary homes, are in foster care, or live in multi-family apartment homes. My students are all below grade level with a wide range of skills.

Despite any hardships that they face out of school, my students are genuinely excited to learn.

They are full of enthusiasm and a love for learning. As their teacher I want to provide them with the tools and experiences that they need to be successful in life.

My Project

Thanks to generous donors, our classroom was able to acquire four Chromebooks through two DonorsChoose.org projects! I must say, these Chromebooks have been a complete hit in my classroom! I originally put up a project for Chromebooks so that my students can conduct research, but they have been used for so much more. They are conducting research, completing Google coding activities, practicing their reading skills on Raz-Kids...my students are even asking to type up their essays! The Chromebooks are used every single day and there is always a waiting list for who will get to use them next. Students even ask to stay up during recess just so they can have a turn using them. It is because of this that I am putting up one last project for Chromebooks. With this project we will have a total of 6 Chromebooks!

Having Chromebooks in the classroom will allow my students to gain the 21st century skills needed for the real world.

Many of my students do not have access to technology with internet at home, making it difficult for them to do research, type, complete coding activities, and use educational websites beyond school hours. Having Chromebooks will allow my students to have access to current technology and to a world of knowledge.
